SPECTRUM Legal Aid Clinic
WHO – SPECTRUM is pleased to announce that, in partnership with Waterloo Region Community Legal Services (WRCLS), we will be offering a Legal Aid Clinic for the local LBGTQ2+ community. The consulting lawyer from the WRCLS is a member of our community.
WHY – The rainbow community has a number of concerns specific to it (like transgender ID matters and refugee claims based on persecution). In addition, community members may be uncomfortable being transparent with professionals who are not members of our community.
WHAT – The clinic will cover matters of civil law, including those related to financial support (ODSP, OW, EI, CPP and OAS), housing (tenancy problems), transgender ID, and establishing immigration/refugee status.
WHEN –The clinic will begin by operating monthly – on the fourth Tuesday evening of the month. The date and frequency may change according to demand.
HOW – To make an appointment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
WHERE – The clinic will be held at SPECTRUM, Unit 210 – 283 Duke St W, Kitchener.
